Louis Gossett Jr. is a fantastic actor but a narrator he is NOT. I almost gave up listening after finding myself re-winding numerous times because he simply "swallows" his words - all too often he mumbles like he has a mouth full of marbles. I did listen to the end but was thankful when it was over. It really surprises me that other reviewers did not comment on this. Yes it was a great story with a very relevant historical message about the inhumanity of man. I just wish it had been read by someone else.
Started out great - kept my interest, had interesting character development. But then about the middle it turned to crap - could not wait for it to end.
If you're a Sci-Fi fan you may love it. I'm not and I didn't.
My God what a waste of effort trying to get through this piece of useless boring dribble. I have never written a book review before because I have never been so moved to do so. If I could have rated this a "0" or even less I would have. I kept waiting and waitning and waiting for something to happen........... it never did - only the long drawn out thoughts of the main character, or long and boring descriptions of the landscape. Take my word for it - DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME ON THIS ONE when there are so many wonderful alternatives !!!
